How does it come from?
According to tales and legends, the Spring Festival origins from a mythical beast called “Nian”, who will eat the villagers, especially children. So in order to protect themselves, people put food in front of doors at the beginning of every year. They believe that the Nian would not attack people any more after it had eaten the food. One day, a god told people that the Monster Nian was afraid of red color and the firecrackers could frighten it away. So from then on, when the New Year is about to come, people will wear red clothes, hang red lanterns, and hang red couplets, paper-cuts on doors and windows. At the same time, firework has become a tradition for Chinese New Year.
